[xep-support] RE: XSLFO and overprinting

We can add that to the future requirements list. I am currently working on
the list for the next version but I can say I'm pretty sure this will not
make it. Currently I would like to target enhancements to the PDF Forms
capabilities to support adding Javascript (for data validation and other
actions) as well as expanding PDF capabilities to include embedding other
forms of multi-media like Flash, MPEG, AVI, MP3. I have also requested an
ability to add attachments to the PDF (like attaching an Excel spreadsheet).

Hi Kevin,


If you print on coloured backgrounds, normally the background-color is not
printed on the areas directly underneath the text-characters.


This guarantees the foreground and background colours not to be mixed.


But in case, when a printing studio is not able to print the foreground
colour exactly on the intended places, there are small gaps between the
background-colour and the foreground-character, where you can see the paper
shining through.


That’s why my printing department wants me to force black text (and only
black text) to overprint background colours.


How can I do this with XSLFO and RenderX?


As far as I know, there is no overprint-attribute in XSLFO-spec.

But as far as I know, there is a overprint attribute in the PDF-spec.


What do you think about a RenderX extension?


Kind regards
